The Wandering Orange Jump Suit

I have had the opportunity to meet some amazing performers over the years, and often-times, to share the stage and ministry with them. It is so humbling to think of the people whose paths God has allowed me to cross, and to have had a chance to share in His work with them.

I Hate Snakes

A few years ago, one of my former students invited me to be a part of an awesome week of summer camp with his church. Over 100 teenagers made the trek from Tampa, Florida, to the hills of Tennessee to participate. It was an awesome week!

Hand-holding story

  One of the great parts of travel is getting to meet new and interesting people. Over the last twenty years of travel I have flown across the country and around the globe, and without a doubt, I have met some fascinating people in my travels, especially on long flights.   Airplanes are really conducive to these kinds of encounters because, let’s face it, you’re trapped in a steel tube at 35,000…
